Our services

At Mount Sinai Hospital we provide the following services:

Bone Density Scan 

Bone densitometry measures the amount of mineral in your hip and spine, and is used to diagnose osteoporosis.

Breast Imaging 

Breast Imaging at the Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre is used to help identify and diagnose any abnormalities that can be found in the breast.

Computed Tomography (CT) Scan 

A CT Scan uses a series of x-ray images to produce a clear picture of a part of your body.

General radiography (X-Ray) 

X-rays use small amounts of radiation to create images of your bones, tissues and internal organs.

Interventional Radiology 

Interventional radiology uses medical imaging and tiny medical instruments to diagnose and treat patients without surgery.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) 

MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues in your body.

Nuclear Medicine 

Nuclear medicine uses small amounts of radioactive materials and a radiation detector to examine the structure of organs and tissue and how they’re functioning.

Obstetrical Ultrasound 

Obstetric ultrasounds, also called prenatal or pregnancy ultrasounds, use high frequency sound waves to examine a growing embryo or fetus.


Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of your body.
